We have a few new posters for you today. First up, it’s a blending of the character posters for David O. Russell‘s terrific-looking film, American Hustle. It doesn’t pop off the page, but the font gives the uninitiated an understanding of the time period, and it doesn’t hurt to have a glamorous Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence flanking your leading man. Far less glamorous and classy is the poster for the horror film Nurse 3D. I understand it’s trying to evoke the art on World War II bombers, but the movie has nothing to do with that time period. It’s just pandering, and not doing it very well. Finally, there’s the poster for I, Frankenstein, which bears the tagline, “200 Years Later, He’s Still Alive”. Imagine Colin Clive (from the 1931 movie) shouting that line and it loses some of its potency.

Here’s the official synopsis for American Hustle:
A fictional film set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock our nation, American Hustle tells the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that’s as dangerous as it is enchanting. Jeremy Renner is Carmine Polito, the passionate, volatile, New Jersey political operator caught between the con-artists and Feds. Irving’s unpredictable wife Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence) could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, American Hustle defies genre, hinging on raw emotion, and life and death stakes.
